PATRIOTS NOTEBOOK: Its time for Tom vs. the Texans


Though he's already secured his place in the Hall of Fame and may possibly end his career as the most accomplished quarterback in league history, Brady reiterated this week in the final installment of his Facebook Watch series "Tom Vs Time" that he wants to play five more seasons.

With Sunday's kickoff, the New England Patriots start their first season in an era of dramatic expansion for United States sports betting. A Week 1 win would mean much more to the visitors, who have been unable to beat Brady in the past. "We played a safety where we didn't know what he was going to do, so we would tell Vrabel to read the quarterback, do whatever you want. You don't see all that in the preseason, so it's hard to prepare for that".

"I love playing football", Brady said.

For the Patriots, Andrews points to preparation as the key to slowing down Houston's defense, an unsurprising sentiment coming from one of Bill Belichick's players.

"Vrabel would drive Tom insane playing safety", Belichick said.

The video is featured on the Houston Texans Twitter page, and shows Watts in the middle of two young boys, while all three are sitting on red chairs and holding microphones.

This will be Watson's second trip to New England after he and the Texans came up just short in a 36-33 loss there past year. "We know the significance of it, so we've just got to be prepared and ready to go on Sunday". They've gone 41-14 (.745) since then in the opening month.

'I think it's going to be very hard to do. You can also listen to the game on 610 AM and 100.3 The Bull. "Different things come up, and decisions are made, that's why you're team is never the same at the beginning of the season as the end". This would see him earn $1 million each for finishing in the top five in quarterback rating, top five in completion percentage, top five in yards per attempt, top five in touchdown passes, and top five in passing yards.

He shined in a 36-33 loss to the Patriots in Week 3, going 22 of 33 for 301 yards and two touchdowns with two picks, and rushing for 41 yards on eight carries.

"If there was a fast pass-rush on the edge when we were playing somebody, he'd jump in there and take reps and be that guy".

"But yeah, when I think of Tom, I think of situations like that. I feel pretty confident in there and you're trying to avoid those the best way you can".

"He still has all the ability he had past year". I've had a few experiences when I haven't been out there and haven't liked those very much. "So that is definitely still going to be there". We will start to get some answers on Sunday.
